6Weekends With Alex Witt
president no matter what. who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, and to food, to housing, to you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them. >> that is one tough ad. you're putting faces to those words. amie has the romney camp come up with any effective counter to it or is this going to be a theme for the next 38 days? >> i think it will be a theme for the next 38 days. they are trying to respond to it. you saw this week, he touted his health care law in massachusetts, which was a little awkward for him. but he's kind of showing that he does have an empathetic side. but meanwhile the obama campaign is also coming back. they're releasing new web ad this morning. they're slamming him for bain again for his private equity experience. so i think you're going to see these themes recurring again and again. >> okay. good to see you both as always.

. the country, there's no central governing authority. it's hard to get into benghazi and investigate exactly what happened. >> thank you very much for giving us a good view of what's going on there, mike viqueira. >>> for more on all this i'm joined by "washington post" reporter and reporter for roll call. welcome. david i want to get to the situation in libya with you. is there any regret inside the white house how they've handled this? >> i don't know if regret is the right word. but they have made it more difficult on themselves. they said in the early hours after this thing happened, this incident happened there was a lot of things they were trying to figure out. they didn't have all the answers. they were still investigations to be done. but since then and since this has started to dribble out here and there, the white house has changed its tune as mike said. the press secretary and hillary clinton have now called it a terrorist attack. the president has not done so yet publicly. what the white house has not really done is come out and given a full accounting maybe from the top.
